NASA is in the works of upgrading both its website and app to take advantage of the continued demand for online content both via browsers and mobile devices. In doing so, it is readying to provide a massive library of readable content as well as streaming media that users can access online.
At first, the main focus will be on the agency’s website, where users can (already) take a sneak peek at what everything will look like. All you have to do is visit beta.nasa.gov via any browser. NASA hopes users will browse around and submit feedback about their experience.
Later in the year, the agency will also update its app as well. Making it easier for mobile devices to gain access to all of the same content. Within this phase, it will also be rolling out its own video streaming service it is calling NASA+ to mimic all of the streaming services wanting to add a “plus” to the end of their service names.
The app will be made available to Android and iOS platforms, as well as most of the popular streaming solutions like Roku, Fire TV, and others.
The overall platform will continue NASA’s efforts to provide useful information about its current and past missions, including updates, climate information, educational content, and more. It will include both old series and new ones that users will be able to watch and follow.
